Thank you Mr. Peabody, Peabz, for a wonderful
four years. Having a Vice Principle who is so
personable with a great sense of humor has
made getting in trouble a little bit more
bearable. His signature mustache and taking
care of business attitude will forever be
remembered by the Class of 2010. Again, thank
you for being there for us, we will miss you!

Mr. Robert Kostka
Mr. Robert Kostka, chair of the Social Studies Department, is retiring this
year after being part of the B-R family for 40 years. He has developed a
true following with his sociology classes. As his many students will tell you,
his Type 2 personality (and what kind of wing did you say you had???) will
be sorely missed along with his dedication. Thanks and gratitude to you,
Mr. Kostka! Enjoy your retirement years!
Mrs. Patricia Anania
Mrs. Pat Anania came to us from West Bridgewater. She has been at BR
for 15 years. Mrs. Anania passionately teaches earth science. She loves
nature and strives to excite her students about their environment and what
is happening around them. Mrs. Anania has led the Science Olympiad team
for 10 years. She has kept this team alive through very difficult financial
times. This team has grown and had many successes under Mrs. Anania's
guidance. Pat has given a lot to the students of BR. We will miss her in the
science department and in our school. Thanks Mrs. Anania!
Mr. Alan Coughlin
Mr. Al Coughlin is the Senior member of the Science Dept. He has been the
department head for 5 years. Mr. Coughlin is a veteran and a hard worker.
He has taught earth science to thousands of students over the years. Mr.
Coughlin is professional, kind, and respectful to all that work with him. He
has been a good friend and a dedicated teacher. We will miss him. Thanks
Mrs. Susan Brougham
After many years as a first grade teacher, Mrs. Brougham arrived at the high school
in 2004 as our new librarian. The transition from elementary school to high school
could not have been smoother. She was a welcome addition to our staff and a
fierce advocate for our library. Her creativity transformed the library by adding
decorative bulletin boards and educational posters. She set up quiet study areas for
staff and organized and trained a wonderful group of docents to assist us as well.
She was able to provide new and modern resources even under difficult financial
times. We wish her all the best as she retires and will truly miss.

JACQUELINE B. FORBES, Ph.D.
To The Class of 2010:
You have achieved an important milestone in life. Graduation is a time to reflect on the past
four years of a challenging yet rewarding high school experience. It is also a time to look
forward to a promising future.
Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School has provided you with the necessary knowledge
and skills upon which to build your future. Knowledge is not enough to be successful; it is how
you use that knowledge that counts. Use your wisdom to do the right things, to act on
principle and with compassion for others.
Go forth with the confidence of your teachers, families, and yourselves into a world that holds
limitless possibilities. On behalf of the Bridgewater-Raynham Regional School Committee, I
wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Make us proud!
Congratulations to the Class of 2010!
Jacqueline B. Forbes
Superintendent of Schools
From the Principal
To the class of 2010,
I wish you the best of luck! I have been honored to work with such a fine group
of young men and women during my first year as Principal. Four short years
ago, we embarked on this journey together and I feel that in that short amount of
time we have learned and grown a great deal from one another. You never
ceased to amaze me with your hard work and ability to rise to the occasion in all
that you have done. The core of your experience at B-R is one you should all be
proud of. Through all the ups and downs over the course of your high school
years, you passed the tests put before you and met the expectations set for you
not only by your school, but by your families. You have established high
standards for your peers to follow and you have always represented B-R in the
most positive light.
Although this chapter of your life is closing, another one is beginning the
beginning of your life as young adults with increased responsibilities and
expectations. Remember to always have the courage to seek the truth, to speak
the truth, and to stand up for the under dog - even if yours is the lone voice
doing so. Have the courage to trust your own moral
compass - your innate understanding of right and wrong.
And have the courage to accept that you are not perfect,
nothing is, and no one is - and that is ok.
In closing, I want you to remember one thing.... be proud of
what it took to get to this special day. Remember the hard
work you put forth to get to this moment and realize that it
is just the beginning of a wonderful journey.
Congratulations and good luck to you!

This year's Varsity Football Cheerleaders proved to be a
wonderful group of girls. These ladies have a great ability to
balance fun and hard work. It was through their dedication
and perseverance that we were able to have a successful
season. The team placed second in the OCL and qualified to
advance on to the regional competition. Senior Captain
Brittney Morgan describes the team as "amazing girls who
bonded to form one of the closest teams BR has ever seen
and I'm proud to have been a part of it". Senior Captain Katie
Sheridan says "Cheer girls, thanks for a great year!
Unforgettable times at Gillette! Good Luck next year! " These
girls along with our other two seniors Kailey Walsh and
Courtney White will be greatly missed next season. "G-N!"

Girl's Cross Country
The Lady Trojans, led by 14 seniors, and 4
captains, Jill Wyman, Megan Gilmartin, Emily
Hemming and Amanda Wong, finished with a 6-
10-2 record. The team exemplified commitment
and tenacity at practices and games and
remained positive throughout the entire season.
We will miss our senior leadership, but are
hopeful for the 2010 season.
The BR golf team had several goals at the start
of the season. Among them was to qualify for the
state tournament and finish well in the Old
Colony League. Unfortunately they got off to a
very slow start with a 1 and 6 record. Both goals
didn't seem possible as they entered the second
half of the season. They won their next four
matches and finished strong with an 8 and 8
record qualifying for the State Tournament by
beating Attleboro 241 to 269 in the last match of
the season. Their OCL record was 5 and 3 which
allowed them to finish in second place. They
finished 7th in the MIAA State Division 1 Golf
Tournament, with 2010 returning golfers Cody
Nussbaum and Chris Oien posting scores of 79
and 81. The Old Colony League Tournament
recognized the top ten finishers and three BR
golfers received awards. Co-captain Matt Hart
and Cody Nussbaum tied for third place and
Trey Sibert finished in sixth place. The team
looks forward to the 2010 season with five
returning starters and with many promising

The Trojans surpassed all expectations this
year by holding a 10-3 overall record. With big
wins against Attleboro and Taunton, it led to
an OCL championship for the team.

The S-/ 1 ? Soy's Soccer Team enjoyed a fun, thrilling season,
posting one of their best records in years. The Trojans,
runners up in the Old Colony League, qualified for the state
tournament midway through the season, as Senior Captains
Bias Loucagos, Skylor Nelson, and Tom Mullen provided
remarkable leadership. Highlights of the season included a
2-1 victory over Brockton; an exciting come-from-behind 3-2
win against Dighton-Rehoboth, in which B-R scored twice in
the final 3 minutes (Tom Mullen had 2 goals and an assist);
Skylor Nelson netting 2 goals and adding an assist in a 4-1
defeat of Taunton; and a win on Senior Night. Everyone
contributed to the team 's success, and seniors Sebastian
Celeita, Bryan Cohoon, Matt Curtis, goalkeeper Zeke
Georgantas, Brendan Glavin, Tim Kennedy, Marquis Marshall,
Collin McLaughlin, Shawn Morin, Matt Needham, Nick
Rogers, Junior Saad, and Mike Zutaut will be difficult to
replace and certainly missed next season. Nevertheless, they
leave the B-R program in good hands to a group of solid
underclassmen, including Jeff Sherman, Sam Babchuck, Joe
Esposito, Nick Burnett, Garrett Kelly, Tyler Smith, and others.
The Trojans should be a contender for the OCL crown and
post-season play again next year.

The Lady Trojans had an impressive year. They
had two ties and one loss in their first three
games of the season, but they soon found a
balance and went on a six game winning streak.
The young, but talented Trojans were able to
overcome obstacles such as injuries and the flu
that seem to take over the players one by one.
The girls not only found a balance in their play,
but they competed like champions into the
quarter finals of the post season tournament.
This truly was an astounding achievement since
many regarded this year as a building year.
OCL Record 6-2-0 Overall Record 12-5-3
The team continued to work towards turning B-R Volleyball into a winning
program. The senior captains were great leaders on the court. Jess Chute
was an aggressive and powerful outside hitter. Kate Bumpus balanced the
roles of middle hitting and setting. Tara Conti played well wherever she was
asked. Standout juniors this season were Allie Sasenick, Daryl Medeiros,
Kelsey Baumgarten, Kendra McMasters and Steph Sylvester who each
contributed individual strengths to the team. The girls worked extremely
hard and showed improvement as the season progressed. The Seniors have
shown dedication for the past three seasons with me as their coach and
never gave up no matter what their record was.

Taryn and Amanda are exceptional student-

achievements both on and off the court
during their B-R Basketball career. As our
team captains and senior leaders, they have
a competitive spirit that has propelled our
team to achieve their goal of making a return
trip to the state tournament.
The 2009-10 Girls Basketball team had 3
returning Varsity players and 8 newcomers

The 2009-2010 Lady Trojans Varsity Gymnastics
Team had a season for the record books. The
girls had a 7-0 record in the Cranberry League
North Division. The team not only competed
well together, but their unity and spirit was
extraordinary. Senior Captains Rachel Livolsi
and Jillian Kitterick, and Junior Captain Kelsey
Baumgarten lead the team. The team also
qualified for the MIAA South Sectionals in hopes
of qualifying to the MIAA State
Championship. Individual highlights were Rachel
Livolsi qualifying to the MA state individual
competition on Bars, Beam and Floor, Rachel
placed 4th in state on bars losing only by .075 of
a point. Freshman stand out Mary Korotsky also
qualified as an all around competitor^ very hard
task to do as a freshman. In the Cranberry
League, Jillian Kitterick was named
Sportswomen of the league and Rachel and
Mary both took home All Star awards. I'm very
proud of the team for their gymnastic talents,
positive attitudes and willingness to work hard
and challenge themselves.

The B-R Baseball team has high hopes for the 2010
season with a good nucleus of returning starters from a
team that went 20-3 last season, finishing in the South

Eddie Campbell (Capt./18-1 career record/Va. Tech),
Mike Connolly (Capt./excellent SS/UMaine), Nick
LeBlanc, Will Rolls (3rd base/Franklin Pierce), Brendan
Glavin and Jon Palmer (CF/ECONN) as well as juniors
Billy Zolga, Mike Devin, Kyle Campbell and Garrett Kelly
give B-R excellent pitching depth and experience.
James Alfonso (Capt./U Hartford) returns as one of the
best defensive catchers in EMass and will be backed
up by Connolly and sophomore Brandon Hoyle. Neil
Harrington (Assumption for football) will lead off and
play 2nd base, followed by Palmer, Connolly, Campbell,
Alfonso, Rolls, Ryan Drowne (senior OF/DH) and Zolga
(OF/3B) to give B-R a strong offensive line-up. In
addition, juniors Sean McCall (SS/OF), Matt Ives (OF),
Cody Nussbaum (1 B) and Matt Collins (2B) will be solid
starters. Seniors John Scleparis and Russell Reed will
be valuable reserve players off the bench.
The BR Varsity softball team is looking good

Haley Sarcevicz are the three senior captains
this year. Behind the plate catching for Audrey

backed by returning outfielders Devinn Doherty
and Haley Sarceviez. New additions to the
varsity team are juniors, Rachel Bergeron,
Stephanie Sylvester, sophomore Rachel McCall
and freshman Chelsea Corriea.
The tennis team is coming off of a 15-3 season.

This 2009 B-R football team had an amazing season. The
team made it all the way to the Superbowl at Gillette
Stadium. The team played great, even through the tough,
snowy conditions. Although, the team suffered a loss, the
experience will be unforgettable.
Full of fun and laughter, BR's spirit week
entertained us all!
Whether it was Decades Day or Superhero
Day the surprises were endless.
B-R's halls were full of spirit when we had
Safari and Jersey Day!
Rivalry actually brought the school together
for Pirates vs. Sailors Day and Color War.
This exciting week ended with a pep rally for
our Thanksgiving football game!

From the Editors
Congratulations Class of 2010!
Making this yearbook has been stressful and time consuming,
but very much worth it! Thank you to everyone who worked
hard to make this book, donating time and pictures. We hope
that you will look back on this yearbook and cherish the time
you spent here. In the past four years, in the Old School and in
the New School, we have been able to share our secrets,
lockers, friends, and memories. It's hard to think that our lives
are just beginning and we have so much more to experience.
We wish everyone luck in whatever they chose to do (:
Live. Laugh. Love.

You have come so far in twelve fleeting years,
embracing life's challenges, while planning your career.
Along this journey came fear and doubt, as you learned
what life was all about.
We watched you grow into a fine young man,
one, who never said never, but rather "I can."
Always a supporter of the weak not the strong, you
principles and character carried you along.
You handshake and work is as good as gold,
for you value friendships and family as everyone knows.
You've reached out to strangers and raised money too,
helping those who were less fortunate than you.
Not afraid to cry at the loss of someone you love,
you stand tall for your family, with strength from above.
A free spirit for sure, that we all know,
you're not afraid to set out in this world on your own.
So today stand proud on the day of graduation,
as you take the next step toward your career destination.
Prouder parents we could not be,
because as our son, you make it easy.
We love you,

CANIAM CHALLENGE CUP
On July 4th one of the nation's most
recognizable symbols of freedom, the Statue
of Liberty, reopened its crown to visitors.
After the September 1 1th attacks, the
monument was closed to all visitors until
2004 when the base and lower observation
decks were reopened. Guests will be allowed
to make the 1 68-stair climb to the top for
the next two years, when the crown will close
again for safety work.
Millions watched as a large metallic

Heene was not inside, the world was
relieved to learn he had been hiding
in the attic the entire time. Three days
later, after a telling interview, the whole
spectacle was deemed a hoax in the
parents' pursuit of fame and fortune. The
parents pled guilty to criminal charges
and received jail time.
Fort Hood Tragedy
On November 5, 2009, Fort Hood, America's
largest military base, transformed from a
place where soldiers prepare for war to an
actual battlefield. Major Nidal Malik Hasan,
a licensed military psychiatrist, opened
fire in the processing center where soldiers
report before deployment. Twelve soldiers
and one civilian lost their lives, while 30
others were injured, including Hasan. In the
past, Hasan had been openly critical about
the war on terror.
Clunkers Make Some Noise
For nearly a month in the summer of 2009 America was
consumed by CARS (Car Allowance Rebate System), commonly
known as Cash for Clunkers. The government program was
designed to encourage drivers to trade-in old gas-guzzlers in
favor of new, fuel-efficient vehicles. With an incentive of up to
$4,500, the program was wildly successful and nearly 700,000
cars were traded in.
A Music Icon Remembered
Legendary performer Michael Jackson passed away suddenly at
the age of 50. As news spread of his death, the internet suffered a
significant slowdown as people worldwide conducted simultaneous
searches. Jackson was also nominated for five American Music Awards
in 2009, including Artist of the Year, after his music sow a tremendous
surge in sales and airplay. As a final tribute, Sony Pictures released
This Is If. The never-before-seen footage of Jackson rehearsing for his
final 50 shows was a massive success, making millions.
North Korea conducted a series of rocket
and missile tests, including an underground
nuclear bomb test in an attempt to lure
the U.S. into talks to loosen sanctions. The
international community was outraged,
stating that the test was in clear violation
of international law. In 2008, North Korea
agreed to suspend its nuclear testing in
exchange for economic stimulus, but the deal

The island nation of Haiti was struck by
a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake
so strong it could be felt nearly 200

left millions seeking shelter and medical
attention and Haitian government
officials estimated over 1 1 1,000
people lost their lives. Humanitarian
organizations such as the Red Cross
set up aid and relief efforts while
streamlining donations by allowing
individuals to text message pledges.
Within days, over $355 million in
donations had been raised through the
combined efforts of companies, charities
All a Buzz
Kavya Shivashankar, a 13 year old from
Kansas, won the Scripps National Spelling
Bee. A four-time competitor and aspiring
neurosurgeon, Kavya won the trophy and
more than $40,000 in cash and prizes with
her correct spelling of "Laodicean"— meaning
lukewarm or indifferent in religion or politics.
Oprah Moves On
Popular syndicated talk show host and
business tycoon, Oprah Winfrey, announced
she would end The Oprah Winfrey Show
in late summer 201 1 . The news came as a
shock to fans that have elevated her status
to nothing short of on icon since the show's
inception in 1 986. Early speculation indicated
she may start a new show on her own Oprah
Winfrey Network in 201 1 . Her show currently
draws about 7 million viewers a day.
Iranian Election Protests
Iran's presidential election drew international attention when disputes
over the winner sparked two weeks of protests. Reformist activists
claimed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's landslide win was a fraudulent
mishandling of the ballots. The protests resulted in 20 fatalities,
numerous arrests and trials for nearly 100 demonstrators facing
charges such as attacking government property, violence toward
security forces and creating panic in public.
With a vote of 68-31, Sonia Sotomayor
became the first Hispanic person to become
a Supreme Court Justice and just the
third woman of all time. Sotomayor was
appointed to the Supreme Court with 17
years of federal experience, having tried
over 3,600 cases.
Automobile giant, Toyota, recalled eight of its
models after learning of a problem with its
acceleration mechanisms that caused some
gas pedals to stick and vehicles to accelerate
without warning. Though the company said
the problem is "rare and infrequent" it
decided to recall about 4.2 million vehicles
worldwide and brought U.S. sales and
production to a halt. The company tried to
remedy the situation and ease the nerves
of uncertain drivers by sending new parts to
dealers to fix the faulty pedals.
Ares Blasts Off
Forty years after putting the first men on the moon, NASA
is once again elevating its space program with the new Ares
1-X Rocket. The streamline rocket's simpler design is cheaper
and up to 10 times safer than its shuttle predecessors.
Despite a successful first test in late October, officials say
that the 1 -X may not carry astronauts until 2017.
What were your favorite
headlines of the year?
H1N1 Flu Outbreak
In the spring of 2009, HI Nl emerged with the first
reported cases in Mexico. The virus reached the
United States in April and officials worried the flu
would spread rapidly, causing a global pandemic
and fear that the unpredictable flu virus could
mutate into a more dangerous strain. In the fall,
President Obama declared a national emergency,
enabling the government to provide more aid to
the states. In the U.S. alone, millions of people
were infected and thousands lost their lives.
When a vaccine became available in the fall,
thousands flooded phone lines and clinics
around the country, as the demand greatly
outnumbered the first supply.

Health Care Hurdles
In groundbreaking sessions of Congress, both the House and
Senate passed bills for health care reform after months of
debate. The next step was to merge the nearly SI trillion
proposed plans for a final vote. If passed, the bill would
become the largest federal health care expansion in forty
years since the introduction of Medicare and Medicaid. The
goal of the bill is to bring extended insurance coverage to an
additional 30 million Americans.
A surprise to many, the Norwegian Nobel Committee
honored President Borack Obama with the 2009 Nobel
Peace Prize, just eight months into his tenure. The committee
explained it was Obama's "extraordinary efforts to
strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between
peoples" that brought his name to the top of the nominees
list. Upon learning the news, the president remarked that he
was humbled by the decision.
President Obama announced the deployment of 30,000
additional American troops to Afghanistan starting in
early 2010, bringing the total U.S. presence to about
1 00,000 troops. The intended strategy was to combat the
growing momentum of the Taliban in the region and to
provide training for Afghan security forces. Plans to begin
withdrawing troops were set for 20 1 1 .
Dubai in the Sky
Marking a stunning architectural achievement, the Burj
Khalifa in Dubai opened, becoming the tallest skyscraper
in the world. The towering needle-shaped structure
stretches nearly 2,700 feet into the air. The building has
1 60 stories which include apartments, office space and a
hotel designed by Giorgio Armani. The eye-catching main
attraction of a new shopping district, the Burj Khalifa
reportedly cost Si. 5 billion to build.
Found 1 8 Years Later
The discovery of Jaycee Dugord 18 years after her
disappearance renewed hope for families of missing
children. When Dugard was 1 1 years old she was
abducted by Philip Garrido while walking to her school
bus. Jaycee was held captive in Garrido's backyard.
Both Garrido and his wife face multiple charges,
including kidnapping and false imprisonment. Jaycee
has since reunited with her family.
Goodbye Good Morning America
In a teary farewell, Diane Sawyer said "goodbye" to Good
Morning America and "hello" to ABC's World News. After more
than 10 years on the weekday morning show, Sawyer replaced
the retiring Charles Gibson as the anchor of the nightly news
program. Sawyer's replacement was George Stephanopoulos,
former President Clinton staff member ond moderator of This
Week on Mi.
Fall of the Wall Remembered
Twenty years ago the Berlin Wall fell, marking the end of the
Cold War and the divide between East and West Germany.
To celebrate the anniversary, thousands of German citizens
celebrated as 1,000 towers, all 8 feet tall, were toppled to
symbolize the destruction of the dividing wall. The celebration
was overseen by current German Chancellor Angela Merkel
and former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev, who many hold
responsible for reforming the former Soviet Union.
Sweethearts®, the popular Valentine's Day
treat, added a new phrase to its line of
endearing candy love messages. Teaming up
with the social-network, Twitter, the candy
company started stamping "Tweet Me" on its
heart-shaped candies. Sweethearts also plans
to introduce a new iPhone app that would
allow users to send electronic versions of the
candy with personalized messages to friends'
Alaskan Governor and 2008 Republican
Vice Presidential candidate Sarah
Palin resigned from office, saying that
Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell would
"fight even harder" for Alaskans. Palin
added that her decision was made to
protect her family from further criticism
and would also allow her to advocate for
causes such as energy independence and
national security. In January 2010, it was
announced that Palin would join Fox News
as a contributor.
Electronic Text Books
College students caught a break this
year— with free text books. Flat World
Knowledge allowed 40,000 students at
over 400 colleges and universities to
access their course materials online, for
free, saving students nearly $3 million in
the fall semester alone. With other options

its offerings to other schools throughout
On Christmas Day 2009, a Nigerian man
attempted to blow up a flight carrying nearly
300 passengers from Amsterdam to Detroit,
Michigan. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had
a bomb sewn into his undergarments and
tried unsuccessfully to detonate the devices
as the plane made its final descent. Stringent
security precautions were put into effect and
President Obama ordered a thorough review
of safety regulations. Al Qaeda later claimed
responsibility for the terrorist act.
On Shaky Ground
The South American country of Chile
was the target of an 8.8-magnitude
earthquake that destroyed many villages
in its path. The next day the same south-
central region of the country was struck
again by a tsunami that created waves
over 18 feet high. Approximately 800
people lost their lives and the destruction
between the two natural disasters
brought widespread shortages in food.
Historically, URLs have been constructed with
Latin based characters like 1, 2, 3 and A, B,
C. Now, after approval by the International
Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers
(ICANN), domain names will appear with other
characters from Arabic and Chinese languages.
The chairman of ICANN, Peter Dengate Thrush
said, "The coming introduction of non-Latin
characters represents the biggest technical
change to the internet since it was created
four decades ago."
Workers in Manhattan, New York were
panicked as a Boeing 747 and an F-l 6
aircraft circled the Statue of Liberty, causing
many to fear a repeat of the 9/1 1 attacks.
It was later discovered that the planes were
official government aircrafts conducting a
photo shoot. The official who approved the
fly-over later resigned.
House Party Crashed
Virginia couple Tareq and Michaele Salahi, crashed the first state dinner
held by the Obama's. Passing two security check-points, the couple mingled
with Vice President Joe Biden and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel before
exiting two hours later. The breach of security caused a full investigation by
the Secret Service. Months later, speculation turned to White House social
secretary Desiree Rogers who was criticized for not keeping a checklist of
attendees as they entered the event. Rogers later resigned.
Late Night Shuffle
After 17 years, Tonight Show\\os\ Joy Leno passed the torch to fellow NBC late-night personality,
Conan O'Brien — but not for long. The Tonight Show lost millions of viewers and Leno's new
self-titled primetime show was deemed a flop. Just seven months after giving O'Brien The Tonight
Show, NBC reversed course, returning Leno to his former seat. As part of the deal, NBC agreed to
pay Conan S33 million, with SI 2 million going to his staff in severance. O'Brien hosted his last
show on January 22nd, while Leno returned to The Tonight Show on March 1st.
After a sophisticated cyber attack rooted
in China, Google announced it would no
longer censor search results on Google.cn,
the Chinese version of the popular search
engine. The Chinese government requires
censorship of search results and websites to
prevent security and state secrets from being
jeopardized. China has the largest population
of internet users in the world.
FDA Takes on Tobacco
The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco
Control Act gave the FDA more power to
control the tobacco industry. Under the new
legislation, tobacco companies were no longer
allowed to use words like "mild" or "low-tar"
and were also prohibited from selling candy
or fruit flavored cigarettes.

"Helicopter seeds," the seeds from maple
trees, have provided hours of fun for children
but researchers were stumped as to what
made the seeds hover. A team of Dutch and
American scientists discovered the answer.
When a maple seed swirls, a tornado-like
vortex lowers the air pressure around the
seed, sucking the wings upward to oppose
gravity— insects, bats, and hummingbirds
employ the same technique.

History's fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex may have had
miniature ancestors. A newly discovered ancient creature
known as "Raptorex" closely resembles its massive
relative, at only a fraction of the size. Experts report it
may have weighed only 1 50 pounds compared to T Rex's
1 3,000 pounds. Raptorex would have existed 60 million
years before T-Rex, and despite its size, would have
touted an extremely powerful bite.
Let's Go Fly a Kite
Scientists from the University of
California and the Carnegie Institution

sustainable energy— through kites.
High-altitude winds contain a vast amount
of energy. By releasing kite-like wind

tethering them to the ground, researchers
believe they could create enough energy
to supply electricity worldwide.
Professor Klaus Lackner of Columbia
University has created a "synthetic tree"
able to capture destructive carbon dioxide

become increasingly hotter, but instead it
was at a 50-year low for solar pressure and
a 100-year low for sunspot activity. Although
dimming of the sun has resulted in decreased

Autism Brain Discovery
To learn more about the causes of autism,
researchers conducted a study of MRI
brain scans of 50 toddlers. Preliminary
findings showed that on average, an area
in the brain called the amygdala is 13%

is believed that these children are born
with normal-sized brains but later in the
